If you’re keeping an eye on investments, Apple’s Stocks app is a great tool. You can quickly see the rise and fall of any stock right on your wearable. This guide shows you how to customize the Stocks app on your Apple Watch.
The Stocks app for iPhone provides everything you need to know in a clean interface. At a glance, you can see the current values in green (gains) and red (losses). By default, the app lists market values for Dow Jones, NASDAQ, Apple, Google, Verizon, AT&T, and more. Apple also tosses in business news curated from its News app.
On the Apple Watch, you can get the same information at a glace save for the curated news. The app icon for Apple Watch depicts a white market trend line set against a dark grey background, as shown below.
With the app open, you’ll see a list of stocks with its name, value, and a customizable data entry. Tap on a stock entry to see its hourly chart, as shown below. Turn the Digital Crown, and you’ll scroll to the next listed stock.
With this guide, we’ll show you how to customize the data, add stocks, and remove stocks.
